Overview

A Roadmap for Transforming Ambition into Achievement

In the sea of thrown-together, stereotypical leadership advice, Julia Tang Peters' Pivot Points stands out like a beacon. This book is not the result of trite 10-step recipes or unstudied observations. Instead, its source is in-depth research conducted among some of the country's most effective leaders.

Intimate interviews and broad survey data reveal that the leaders who stand out are the ones who fearlessly face the decisions that characterize career turning points. Amazingly, the people who break through barriers to transform industries encounter--and effectively confront--the same five critical decisions. In Pivot Points, you'll read how five inspiring and approachable leaders made the choices that cemented their legacies.

Pivot Points is a unique opportunity to learn from the leaders you should learn from--authentic, independent-minded people with a genuine desire to help others understand how to lead. Tools developed from their candid accounts will help you measure and assess your own career trajectory. With a self-diagnostic questionnaire based on the book's unique framework, you'll be able to identify warning signs of stagnation and sustain the passion to achieve. Gain practical insights from this valuable aid for professional development of high achievers in every career stage.

Pivotal decisions can turn an ordinary career into an extraordinary journey to success. The journey is a highly individual one, and Pivot Points will inspire and guide you in the processes of finding your own path to exceptional results. Take a rare look into the process of shifting from the science of management to the art of leadership, and let this one-of-a-kind book propel you toward achieving your best self.

Leadership and management consultant Peters offers a breath of fresh air on the common topic of leadership strategies by focusing on decision-making. Interviewing five successful leaders—including Bud Frankel of Frankel & Company, Glen Tullman at 7wire Ventures, and Dale Dawson of Bridge2Rwanda—she discovers that each made exactly five decisions that turned their careers into leadership-building journeys. After providing a framework for thinking about leadership and the titular pivot points, she dedicates chapters to each of these leaders (who also include John Rogers of Ariel Investments and Al Golin of GolinHarris), showing how decisions shape a leader over the course of a career. Each leader grappled with different areas of leadership—ideas, change, teams, culture, and passion—and cumulatively they provide a well-rounded perspective on leadership challenges. Peters also examines common themes from very different career trajectories, and shares survey research on how people make major decisions. This informative and helpful book offers a refreshing look at effective leadership that will interest readers at any career stage. (June)
